How do I deal with having a bad rep in my university program? I struggled with a few group projects and now most people think I'm pretty dumb, plus word got out that I did badly in first year chemistry. I feel ashamed and guilty and it's exasperating my depression

By proving that you're not that slacker who drags the whole group down and by proving that you're not dumb

Yeah but it's not like I was "slacking" I found the projects hard and couldn't keep up with them along with my other courses, but I did actually care about the projects
Oh well

Guess what? Other people have other shit going on too. You're expected to put in your share of the work regardless, just like everyone else. If that's your attitude, then I don't blame other people for looking down on you.

I did work I just wasn't one of the big contributors or leaders of the group, I think

I guess it's weird I just feel like I don't really even have the slacker life I went to like two parties all semester and don't have many friends and felt like I spent most of my time in the library. Maybe it's a matter of refining my approach to studies. Idk

it could be youre just not that bright.

not being a cunt, just saying.

It's not about the 'slacker lifestyle,' it's about whether or not you can contribute effectively to group projects and get good grades

My program has a 4% acceptance rate and I got in

Yeah I know. It seems like of the 4 projects so far there's no one unifying issue I faced, so it's hard to come up with some platitude. Maybe I'll just have to be more pragmatic next time around and be willing to sacrifice sleep more, since I never slept less than 8 hours

Contrary to popular belief, it's perfectly possible to have a balanced life in college. You might need to work on your time management, but it's totally doable. I got through law school with a part time job, volunteer job, and my sanity intact.

Yeah I think overall it's a matter of focus and time management since I felt like I would be working steadily and then find myself surprised when project deadlines started to draw close to midterms and stuff. Maybe more prioritized and goal oriented work instead of just saying "I'm gonna spend 7 hours at the library today"

The thing that helps me the most is having a wall planner. A diary or organiser is great too, but I find a wall planner really helps me see at a quick glance what I have when, which then helps you see how much time you'll need to get an assignment done or to study for a test.
